    Day 4-

    We left out of Mile Marker 100 and headed for our camp site, passing thru Rapid City, Sturgis, Deadwood, & Lead.



    We got to where we're staying for a few days. Base Camp.

    After setting up, took a little walk around...



    ...yep, it's cold, high 40's.

    But we took a little ride around, checking out the immediate area...



    ...then got the drone up in the air for a bit different perspective...



    ...a little closer...



    ...and a bit closer still.



    This is a great area. Quiet, no other folks around, surrounded by woods, and can hear the stream from our front door.

    But there is no cell service, no internet, just us and nature.

    Will post more as time allows. Been sitting in this parking lot, 6 miles from camp, long enough.

    Looks like a good time

    Your picture of Lake Francis Case brings back a lot of good memories for me

    We always stopped @ the rest area on our way to Sturgis

    I remember sleeping on the grass one year, They kind of frown on that

    We have the truck and camper. We're in Red Lodge now. Beartooth is closed at state line. They had a big storm up there Friday night,a guy got stranded for a day . The road is still closed. Just so you know to check on it if your planning on going that way. Oh yea, found out last night the VP is going to be in Yellowstone Thursday at Old Fathful. .. Should have stayed home.... Or gone some other place.

    Holy Cow!....that looks like a great, undiscovered spot! Spectacular shots of the campsite. Thought you'd have some cooler weather this week..... I love 'light jacket' weather.

    I'm sure you'll find better places with internet and cell service than your parking lot.....I hope.

    Enjoy the Hills!

    Yes!!! We've been enjoying...lol...and not getting any thing done on the Ride Report. But Mary is taking a lot of pics. I think 479, just the first day riding Spearfish Canyon a couple of times.

    No Beartooth this year. It was about this time last year that we rode it, and it was still pretty nasty up there!

    Next week we are going to Yellowstone with family (sans bike), I'm resigned to the normal crowds....but glad that the VP was last week...that would have been horrible.

    Yeah, we had read about this spot, but it is even better than the recommendations.

    You were right about the weather. Nights in the 40's and days in the high 50's...but that's what electric jackets are for.

    Day 5-

    Our first morning at "base camp" for the Hills.

    What a great place. This pic was with morning dew still on the windshield...



    ...it was still in the upper 40's when we went for a little 15 mile putt around the local area. Here we are headed back to camp to get ready for a day out, exploring the roads between Cheyenne Crossing, Deadwood and Spearfish.



    As we were getting ready to leave for the day, you can see the hail falling...



    ...Mary got a photo of me looking at the stuff, thinking, "WHAT is this, and why isn't it melting?" lol



    On the road now. There are miles of nice sweepers (and some tighter curves) between camp and Lead...



    ...there is nothing like flying through roads like this, what a great place to ride...



    ..."look ma, no hands".



    There is some road work going on around Lead & Deadwood...getting ready for the Sturgis rally.



    Riding down the main drag in Deadwood. We parked and did a bit of walking around the shops...



    ...then headed back the way we came, toward Spearfish Canyon. Neither Mary nor I wanted to go into a hole in the side of a mountain, seems like riding a motorcycle is Much Safer than that. lol



    Much more coming for today, will post as time permits.

    We found out it was rock slides that had Beartooth closed so long... When you get to Yellowstone, their still working on the east entrance. And Canyon Village to Norris. All dirt, mud and loose crap everywhere. We sat 15 min. before getting to play follow the leader about 15 mph... We came in the NE entrance over to Hot Springs and cut over to the East entrance. We were going to stay at the West entrance until we saw the crowd at Hot Springs, and Heard about the VP the day before... We canceled our reservations and headed for Graybull... So many people out there, the gal said normally they dont cancel, but as packed as it was , they could easily sell the spot... It only cost $10.00 to get out of the rat race.... To many people out there for me anymore... My next place will be Sturgis Rally on the Trike... No crowds there ... At least their more my kind of people

    Thanks for the heads up on the constructions zones...we'll know to stay away from them. We're not going to have time to see the entire park anyway.
